Not bad -- but Eric McCormack is NO leading man
14 January 1999 | by carbonbitSee all my reviews

Kim Cattrall, Sean Young & William Devane are all very enjoyable in this movie, and the story is generic but not too bad. Now if only Eric McCormack could act his way out of a paper bag or had half the charm of a dishrag... Any decent actor in the male lead and this movie could have been truly "okay."
